Mahalo Answers takes on Yahoo! Answers with money

Search engines are great at answering some types of questions. Want to know what Barack Obama's kids names are? No problem. Google can help. But some questions are a bit trickier, like "what's the best way to find a new tech job after you've been laid off?" Mahalo wants to be able to answer both types of questions. Mahalo launched about a year and a half ago as a sort of human-powered search...

It's that time again! Apple Keynote in 60 Seconds

So some guy named Steve Jobs got up on stage at something called the WWDC yesterday and talked about some products from a company called...orange or banana? Or was it carrot. Oh, Apple, that's right. It was long. And sometimes boring. So thanks to Mahalo Daily, here it is in Sixty Seconds. Did we get our iPhone with iRobot and iHateMakingMyOwnCoffee? We do get Exchange integration and now we're...

Mahalo Social adds multi-profile support

In a similar vein as the Mahalo Follow toolbar, profile links to other social networks have been added to Mahalo Social. We think this is actually pretty cool. In the past, you could include a link to your other profiles on other social networking sites in your Mahalo Social profile. Now that service has just been improved. When you go to your profile in Mahalo, tabs have been added for some of...

Update numerous social services at once with new mult-submit toolbar from Mahalo

Mahalo, the human powered search engine, has announced a new add-on for Firefox that submits sites to many popular web services at once. How many times have you found a link that you want share with your friends and realize you have to submit it to more than one service such as del.icio.us, twitter, and so on? Mahalo's new add-on, called Mahalo Follow for Firefox solves this problem by...

Google puts Wikipedia in the crosshairs with Knol

If we were Jimmy Wales, we'd have bought a bullet proof vest long ago. Google has just set Jimmy up the bomb; Announcing 'Knol', a human powered index of knowledge which seeks to rival Wikipedia in accountability, and thus accuracy. Knol will focus on credit for authors who "own" pages within the system. Write a bad page, lose your reputation. Write a better page than one which currently...

Yahoo! pumps up search with Search Assist

Hot on the tail of Google and Mahalo, Yahoo! aims to help searchers get to where they want faster. The goal of Yahoo! OneSearch is "to get things done." Now Yahoo! has integrated a little feature called Search Assist. Yahoo!'s integrated a real time query suggestion tool earlier this year that helped users refine search queries. With the newly launched Search Assist from Yahoo!, they are...

Microsoft Live search overhaul - ho hum

With Google turning 9 today and still being the search engine for most everyone on the planet, it's only natural the other big dogs are going to try to bump them off and take-over. The newest bid in this effort is Microsoft and the overhaul of their Live Search site, www.live.com. Live is hyping its search results as a "blended search" where Microsoft attempts to anticipate what its users want....

Is there really that kinda money in search engines?

It's no secret that we've got a soft spot right in the middle of our chest for Mahalo. The company's founder, Jason Calacanis, also founded Weblogs, Inc and, having worked under his absolutely boundless energy, we can say first-hand that he's a force to be reckoned with. Apparently the New York times thinks so as well. The Sunday edition of the New York Times included this great article on the...

Get paid to Mahalo

The once fearless leader of Weblogs Inc has been working hard with his team to develop the Mahalo human based search engine. His team of professional surfers scowers the web searching for the best and most relevant information, without all of the spammy, or non important results. It takes time to build out the pages, and his team has so far managed to build out an average of 500 pages per week....

Mahalo: A new search engine says 'Hello World'

When human-powered search engine Mahalo launched in alpha earlier this month, comparisons to Google Search were inevitable. In reality, Mahalo is to Google like pie is to brussels sprouts. They're both food, but pie is much more fun to eat. Mahalo is the brainchild of uber-entreprenuer Jason Calacanis (the founder of Weblogs, Inc. and, by extension, this blog) and could position itself to become...
